Macy Monday

 for the back story of macy monday go HERE

this layout i reworked so many times - wondering if this really was the "right" paper to use - but just loved these colors so much i wanted to make it work with this amazing (cosmo cricket) boarder it says: "i treasure our memories and crazy times we are friends at heart and partners in crime" when i saw this border i knew it was made for this (most adorable)  picture! ended up l♥ving the eclectic fun feel it gives the layout! although i'm thinking a little journaling spot tag should go right above the title.. think i'll add that for macy - so she can write in a couple thoughts (didn't really think of that till i took this picture of the layout).. isn't it funny how things can look so different in a picture? just sitting on my desk i thought the layout was getting a little overcrowded.. but now i think yep - it needs that tag after all.. hehe

 the flowers are punches - and i used the scraps of the cosmo cricket border paper - which really helped give a TON of texture, color and patten to the flowers - some have writing on them and some have pattern - helps pull all the colors together!

 the chip (bo bunny)  i got on sale a while back and liked the fact that they are a little different and colorful again - pulling all the colors together blue and orange = yummy!


  1. Perfect quote! Thanks for giving me a sneak peek during our skype-athon the other day. Funner!

  2. Tee hee - you're worried your page was getting overcrowded?! aren't you just the funniest! Yup, that's the perfect place for some journalling there - good you saw it beckoning to ya or the layout would have looked half-finished. I think this one's of my faves, very well-balanced, not too busy or loud, perfect embellishments and a super-cute photo. Love that it's so big too. Well done Bekah! xxxx
